- WATERFALL OVERVIEW
- PICTURES (1) AND MEDIA
- USER COMMENTS
This waterfall has been surveyed, mapped and measured in person by the World Waterfall Database.
Though the falls are not fed by major icepack, there are several small glacial remnants feeding the Geraldine Creek basin, as well as four major lakes feeding into the creek above the falls, so stream flow remains fairly consistent for the majority of the year. During the winter months due to the high elevation the falls freeze over entirely.
HISTORY AND NAMES
- Also Known as: Upper Geraldine Falls
- Geraldine Falls is the Colloquial name of this waterfall
This waterfall, despite its significant stature, does not appear to have ever been given an official name so it is usually colloquially referred to after the nearby lakes and creek.
Location and directions
The Geraldine Lakes trail starts 5.5 kilometers up the Geraldine Fire Lookout Road, itself accessed from Highway 93A about a kilometer north of Athabasca Falls. The first lake is 2 kilometers from the trailhead, and the base of the falls are reached in another 3 kilometers, passing Lower Geraldine Falls along the way. Take note that the hike to this waterfall is moderately strenuous and involves about two kilometers of hiking across extensive boulder fields, so plan accordingly and be sure to bring plenty of food and water.
